General principles

• Make it understandable to a non-expert public, objects characterized by an extreme thematic and figurative richness.

• Reallocate items, characterized by a stratified series of heterogeneous information in the context that produced them.

• Using overlay and translucency digital models, of the Ptolemaic sky and medieval astrological treaties.

• Cross dynamically the layers and the representation scale, proposing a synthetic and synchronic reading of an object of such a complexity.
